Mattel Barbie First All Female Ticket

(Mattel $24.99)

Yes! Barbie is ahead of the curve in this election season. Newest addition to the long line of “You Can Be Anything” dolls, for 2016. Could it be she’s pointing the way to an all female ticket with Barbie running for President and (fill in the name) running for Vice President. And why not? In this historic election year with a woman running for President on a major party ticket for the first time, this duo is ready for dramatic play on every level. We think this is a toy that says something really important to girls. Girls will love getting two dolls instead of just one; and please note, this duo pack includes a woman of color and the packaging does not indicate which of them is running for what office. There’s a lot left here for the imagination and playing out roles. Or, if you are so inclined, left in the package, it’s likely to become a true collector’s item—when having a woman in the Oval Office is no longer something unusual. Give it time.
